Learning Target

- I CAN identify and generate geometric sequences and relate them to exponential functions.

A geometric sequence is a sequence in which each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous term by a nonzero constant r called the common ratio.

8 – 0 = 8

16 – 8 = 8

24 – 16 = 8

32 – 24 = 8

Identify Geometric Sequences

A. Determine whether each sequence is arithmetic, geometric, or neither. Explain.

0, 8, 16, 24, 32, ...

0 8 16 24 32

Answer: The common difference is 8. So the sequence is arithmetic.

Find the nth Term of a Geometric Sequence

A. Write an equation for the nth term of the geometric sequence 1, –2, 4, –8, ... .

The first term of the sequence is 1. So, a1 = 1. Now find the common ratio.

1 –2 4 –8

The common ration is –2.

an = a1rn – 1Formula for the nth term

an = 1(–2)n – 1a1 = 1 and r = –2

Answer:an = 1(–2)n – 1

Find the nth Term of a Geometric Sequence

B. Find the 12th term of the sequence.1, –2, 4, –8, ... .

an= a1rn – 1Formula for the nth term

a12= 1(–2)12 – 1For the nth term, n = 12.

= 1(–2)11Simplify.

= 1(–2048)(–2)11 = –2048

= –2048Multiply.

Graph a Geometric Sequence

ART A 50-pound ice sculpture is melting at a rate in which 80% of its weight remains each hour. Draw a graph to represent how many pounds of the sculpture is left at each hour.

Compared to each previous hour, 80% of the weight remains. So, r = 0.80. Therefore, the geometric sequence that models this situation is 50, 40, 32, 25.6, 20.48,… So after 1 hour, the sculpture weighs 40 pounds, 32 pounds after 2 hours, 25.6 pounds after 3 hours, and so forth. Use this information to draw a graph.
